'Bomber' Cover

Banned at 7-Eleven

Rolling Stone's cover story about the Boston Marathon bomber just got the magazine yanked out of nearly 2,000 7-Eleven stores, and more could follow ... TMZ has learned.

The omnipresent convenient store is joining the national outrage over the mag's upcoming issue with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the cover, and an investigation into his life leading up to the bombing.

A rep for 7-Eleven, Inc. tells TMZ it "will not sell the Aug. 1 issue of the Rolling Stone magazine in its company-operated stores."

There are 1,700 company operated stores -- and another 5,900 franchised stores. The rep says they'll also urge those franchise owners to pull the issue.

Yesterday, CVS, Walgreens, and Stop & Shop all said they will not sell the issue either.

Screw Rolling Stone. I know why they did it and don't agree with it.

They have the right to put it out...
They have the right not to sell it....
I have the right not to buy it and say I think they suck!

Thanks for those rights America.

What's filthy about the Rolling Stone cover is that it is such a distortion of reality. This young man is not a cute and cuddly member of a boy band; he is incarcerated and charged with murder and mayhem in Boston. That is his present reality, and if this magazine wanted him on its cover, that is what they should have shown, not a dreamy Tiger Beat pic. Shame on Rolling Stone for glamorizing this dude with that cover.

Good to see a uniform country taking action that is doing something justified unlike what they did to Paula Dean.

I think it's good that 7-11 did this.It seems like they are trying to promote him as a role model.I believe that they want to wipe out most of the the minorities and poor people and they would like young men to radicalize enough that they could get us to accept more restrictions, give up more rights, and they will have more freedom to deal with people as they see fit,without regard to the constitution and every sign says we are headed that way.
If we were being told that gangs of kids like this were forming an organized network and planning something, people would not care what it took to stop it. They know exactly how they are marketing him out of all the pictures they could have used, especially pictures of the damage, but they are showing him as a teen idol. Then we're supposed to blame it all on the dead brother I don't go for that. I know the brother had a lot of influence over him and that should be considered but don't tell young people you can blow up bombs and blame it on other people. .

He is just the scapegoat for the NWO like George Zimmerman. They want everyone to be united in hate behind very mild mannered and peaceful people. They write twisted fables for the masses to get caught up in, as if they know some hidden facts about these otherwise nonthreatening people.


They want you to think an autistic kid who never stopped smiling shot up little kids and his own mother besides in Sandy Hook. People just don't want to get real.


They do want to kiss up to the authorities, even if they are dirty Nazis lying about innocent victims. They think as long as they seem to have it good, it is all good.


You have to pay the piper one day if you want to dance.

Absolutely disgusting to give this murderer any face time. Shame on you rolling stone! You could have done the article without his face on the front. Horrible for the victims.
